Yacht Club Games have confirmed that their much anticipated action platformer, Shovel Knight, is being delayed into next year.

The news was confirmed in the above tweet, which was made in response to a fan. The game was originally set for release this year, and is currently in development for PC, 3DS and Wii U.

The game is inspired by the classic Mega Man games, as you’ll be traversing across themed stages that are accompanied with various bosses. Naturally, there is a total of eight boss knights for you to defeat.
